[R] R CMD SHLIB setup problem...

When I try and compile a shared library (on WinXP) I get the following

E:\data\proj>R CMD SHLIB toy_dll.c
Makevars:1: *** missing separator.  Stop.

Has someone else had this error and fixed it? 

This code compiles and works fine on Linux (fedora core 2). Everything
was working fine under R1.8.1 but I've broken something when I upgraded
to R1.9.1. 

So I am assuming something weird has happened in the windows paths etc.
If anyone has some tips as to where to look I'd be extremely grateful.
I've been through the path and environment variables etc many times but
can't see where the error is. Though I realize it's likely to be staring
me in the face...
